Metallic Knits


Hi, my name is Sally, and I am addicted to sparkly things. Yep, you know me. Sequins, glitter and metallics are my weaknesses. So when gorgeous, luxe metallic knits hit the shops for A/W 13, I made a dash for it, credit card in hand.

The metallic trend has crossed borders into sequins and studs territory too, with some knits mixing one, both or all three. To avoid resembling a disco ball keep accessories to a minimum and let your knit do the talking.

Pair with leather skinnies for a tough touch, jeans (best bit is they work with light wash and dark wash denims…score!), fitted skirts and high heels to make your knit work double time when it comes to wearing it out at night.

I love a leather pencil skirt, sky-high black stiletto heels and a metallic sequin knit for night-time chic. So effortless and yet so glam!

Here are three of our swiish top picks:

Witchery Gold Foil Print Jumper

This luxe knit will take you from ripped denim and flats at breakfast to the bar for drinks with the girls simply by adding a pair of heels! A multi-tasking knit… who doesn’t love one of those?!

Sheike Metallic Zip Jumper

We love the gorgeous blue hue of this heavyweight jumper woven with metallic threads. Pair it with leather skinnies, motorcycle boots and a backpack.

Sass Kiara Metallic Sweater

This oversized slouchy knit is a dressed up date night dream. Pair with a black leather mini and heels, and add a blazer over the top.

Metallic knits are so on trend that you won’t be short on places to find them. You can shop the look at Forever New, ASOS, Bardot, Sportsgirl, Lucy In The Sky, Dotti, Cue and The Iconic.
